Well, this is weird

My postings in recent days haven't involved the normal vitriol you've become accustomed to.  So I got to thinking last night, "What's happening to me?  Am I losing my edge?"  Then it hit me, I just started a temp gig and it's not awful.  Here's why:
  • It pays pays well (by temping standards).  
  • It's a long-term assignment (by temping standards).
  • It doesn't require much work so I have time to write.
  • My boss isn't an asshole.
  • The hours are a strict 9-6.
  • My commute doesn't take more than 15 minutes.
  • The cafeteria has decent, reasonably priced food.
  • I have friends who work close by, so I can luncheon with them.
  • My co-workers are pleasant and respectful.
  • They have good coffee.
  • On Fridays they bring bagels and pastries for the staff.
  • The computer works.
Wait.  Did I say "I just started a temp gig and it's not awful"?  I've clearly lost my mind.

Get out! It's obviously a trap of some sort! Things to watch out for...."no pants Thursdays"..."the checks will be late this week"...slowly added responsibilities to the point that you suddenly realize you're filling in for the whole accounting department and the reception call your mom and she says "Temp X, you don't sound like yourself anymore."
